“Farmers take the most risks and are at the lowest end of the value chain” Richard Pandohie, Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA).

For far too long farmers are not getting the support they need which spills over into the manufacturing sector and affects the country’s level of agricultural export. Pandohie says the country must sow technology into agriculture.

The Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association believes that agro-processing is an important ingredient to the economic growth that the country has been trying to achieve.
